To make this bracelet, you must know how to make the chevron.

Materials and Set Up

Four strings, around 64 inches, which will be folded in half so you will have an 8 string bracelet.
Fold your strings in half, and use whichever method your heart desires to tie it at the top. :)
Set Up: 12344321, so they're mirrored, here I have used yellow, orange, green and purple.

Step by Step

Step 1

Make four chevrons.

Your string order should be back to 12344321 or yellow, orange, green, purple, purple, green, orange and yellow.

Step 2

You need to make 1 more row of chevron

Step 3

Now take the string on the far left (orange) and tie 2 forward knots onto the next two strings (green and purple)

Step 4

Now on the far right side take your orange and tie 2 backward knots onto the next two strings (green and purple)

Step 5

On the far left side of the bracelet, you want to take the green and make a f/bk knot over the purple.

Step 6

Now you want to do the same on the right side of the bracelet. Take the green and make a bk/f knot over the purple.

Step 7

Now back to the left hand side, take the orange and make 2 bk knots over the purple and green so it's back on the outside.

Step 8

Now on the right side of the bracelet, take the orange and make 2 f knots over the purple and green.

Step 9

Now go to the middle and take your yellow string and you want to make 2 f knots over the purple and green and a f/bk knot over the orange.

Step 10

Back to the middle take the yellow and make 2 bk knots over the purple and green and a bk/f knot over the orange. Your strings should be in this order: O,Y,G,P,P,G,Y,O

Step 11

Take the yellow and make a chevron over the green and purple on both sides.

Step 12

[p]To close it off you need to take the orange and make a chevron over the strings.

Step 13

Repeat from step 3
